New Years Resolutions?

Post by Akeria on 12/28/2009, 11:31 pm

Aright guys, this is the first subject that I'm writing with my new DSi, so the formatting might be wacky...

Anyway, I was thinking; New Years Resolutions. Why don't we each make a list, of all the things we want to accomplish by the end of 2010; writing wise, or otherwise, and see how much we can accomplish?

I'll start with mine. Just post your list, as long or as short as you want, and I'll post it here on the first post.

The Twig Resolutions for 2010
Akeria:
1. Free-write every day of 2010, publish on CreateSpace.
2. Get better grades in school.
3. Lose some weight/ Get more fit.
4. Learn to play piano
5. Finish a story, edit it, and send it to a publisher.
6. Complete/Win NaNoWriMo.
7. Be happier.

Post yours. Goodbye 2009.

1. Don't make any New Years Resolutions as I always break them. xD
I'd participate, but the problem is that my interests change so much that if I put something here (like a PHP project, for instance) I'll be done by the end of January. xD
I might add some more, though. xD
Edit: Okay, so here they are. xD
2. Write at least 1000 words a day.
3. Complete Nanowrimo, again.
4. Finish editing Healers.
5. Keep getting good grades.
6. Finish Imprisoned.
7. Stay healthy.
8. Work on PixelPuppy a lot. x3

1. Complete NaNoWriMo with a higher word goal
2. Get into the school's variety show with a written/parodied song
3. Write an album's worth of songs (7-15)
4. Edit those songs properly

7. Fit into 1-Size smaller jeans (a lot of the pairs I just bought are a little too big for me, but the one size smaller is just a little too tight)
8. Continue to work on the letters of those I care for (in case I don't get to tell them what I really felt about them before I die...)

*looks up* Wow. I didn't know I had such a big list. xD

Great idea, Akeria. :3

My resolutions are...

1. Stop procrastinating.
2. Write more often.
3. Get fit.
4. Eat healthier.
5. Be nicer. XP
6. Be more religious.

That's all pretty general, but I can't set specific goals for myself 'cause I know I'll end up not achieving them. XD

There was a thread in Cup o' Joe, but Amanda closed it. I'd signed up, and I asked if I should take it over, but then the word was that I was working on too many projects, so the thread stayed closed. Smile

Haha, I guess so. xD
I sorta have real penpals, except for I get one letter to "Ariannaq" (yes, there's a 'q' at the end of that) and never hear from them again. xP

1- to have saved enough, and bought a drum set.
2- to have at least begun recording of a The Blue Jeans song.
3- to have grown a nice beard.
4- to have grown out my hair again.
5- to have shaved at least once.
6- to have become good friends with Kaylea.
7- to have bought the other two LotR soundtracks.
8- to have finished editing my NaNo novel.
9- to have learned some guitar chords.

I think that will suffice for now.
